Chef Jessie's Hot CocoaIngredients
• 1 1/2 c. Milk
• 1 1/2 c. Cream
• 1/4 c. Cocoa Powder
• 1/4 c. Vanilla Sugar
• 2-4 oz. Dark Chocolate (depending on how rich you like it)
• Pinch of Salt

Boil the milk, sugar, cocoa and salt in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat; stirring constantly for about 2 minutes until mixture comes to a boil. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Add cream and dark chocolate to the saucepan. Emulsify with an electric hand blender. Return the saucepan to heat (only bringing to temperature — DO NOT BOIL). Pour into demitasse cups. Adding Baileys is also great!
